Playing With Light

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.
Aaron Rose

One of the joys of photography is playing with light, especially natural light. I've come to love the morning and evening light when it strikes objects in a certain way. You look through viewfinder and see the glow, then you must begin to decide how will your camera best capture the light you are seeing, as your eyes and the camera eye doesn't always fall in sync. This is a large part of the learning curve. When you come close to getting it right it makes all the other times you didn't get what you had hoped worth it. You smile, everything in you sings, and you know why you've chosen this path and why you love playing in the light.
